Shirt & Skirt- Veromoda, Bag- Michael Kors, Shoes- River Island, Earrings- Aquamarine| Location- MRP, Mumbai

Amidst the various couture weeks, my mind is bustling with so many ideas and visuals of intricate detailing which makes every look so very special. So for this week's outfit, I wanted to focus on a design that reminded me of those gorgeous creatives yet something that could be worn on any regular day! This skirt from the Artisan Block trend is made from a soft cotton and I loved the flounce and flair it entailed. You could obviously pair this skirt with something from your existing closet but I decided to pair it with a matching shirt. The Artisan Block collection from Veromoda takes it's inspiration from indigo & geometric prints which are incorporated in feminine silhouettes. It consists of a lot of soft textures combined with chambray & lace for an uber chic handcrafted look. The outfit required very little assistance when it came to accessories so I stuck to a dainty pair of white sandals, a nude oversized day bag & a pair of earrings made out of vintage coins! For a contrasting pop of colour, a red orange pout did the trick!

Dress & Cape- Only, Shoes- Asos, Choker- Aetee| Loction- Meuble India

The past couple of weeks have been a constant struggle between "If it's meant to be, it will be" & "If you want it, go get it". I've always been a believer of the latter half but as time passes by, I've come around to making peace with the former too. There is not an ounce of doubt in the fact that, hard work coupled with positive vibes make for a steady cocktail for success or even that much craved sanity. However, recently I've found myself mentally stranded for days, even after downing several of those cocktails. I'm definitely not someone who believes in beating themselves up for every little incident and I would rather find the good even in the worse situations. So what does one do when you're feeling lost and uninspired & no amount retail therapy, spa visits, love notes & scrumptious food can lift your spirit, you just wait it out and let this phase pass.

I've often stated that my style is a derivative of my mood & this outfit depicts my current frame of mind rather aptly. The soft hues represent the calmness that you may see in my demeanor and on the surface but that bold pout constitutes of the chaos that I can barely wait to let out! I absolutely loved how this crochet & lace cape paired with this flowy peach dress creating a subtle yet striking difference. The key hole detail in the dress was further accentuated with an opulent choker. I wanted to add a dose of colour so I went ahead and added a pair of old asos pumps to match that burgundy pout. Where and when would I wear this look? For a date night or even for a day full of errands & meetings, with a pair of flats and maybe slightly a muted pout.

When it comes to styling my hair, I'm quite easy going & you'd often spot me sporting either natural, wavy curls or that air dried straight look. I don't like fussing around too much on a daily basis and that has led me to enjoy care-free hair. However, I haven't been able to ignore the prevalence of intricate braids on literally every Instagram account I come across! Which is why I was very excited to drop in at the swanking new 3500 sq.ft Dessange Salon at Bandra for a fun Braid Brunch with Kerastase. To begin with, the luxury salon was absolutely gorgeous with a high ceiling and white interiors and is home to the best local and international stylists. My counter was already set with a placard placed right next to it. I was then quickly briefed about the Book of Braids and how I could pick a style to try experiment with on that day!

Their celebrity stylist Loic, quickly had a look at my hair and suggested we do something summery which is what I had in mind too. So we decided to go for a casual summer braid with lots of care-free curls. He started off my prepping my hair with the Kerastase Elixir Ultime serum which not only protects the hair from heating tools but also reduces the frizz. He parted a section from the crown to create a fishtail braid and once that was neatly set in place, he then moved on to lightly curl the remaining sections. He then sprayed the Kerastase Elixir Ultime oil mist to add volume, opulent shine and softness to the mane. I absolutely loved the final result and am super excited to try more braids this season!
